Woolley Firs, Maidenhead - 17 January 2012

A brief trip up the M4 after work and we were on our way towards Woolley Firs, Maidenhead to try for Tawny Owl with Gavin. Birds were enticed into the mature trees around the catching area but could not be persuaded down from their lofty perches, so never made their way into the shelves of the heavy 60. We also took a walk across the surrounding fields in an attempt to lamp whatever potential targets could be found, but the Lapwing took off when we were still some distance away and that was that!
